Pink, Squishy Noses of EVIL 

a hard-hitting expose by 
Mary Jane Valetti 

A new villain has bared its 
fangs to the American public, 
lurking our streets and lying down 
with our children at night. Top 
politicians (in an act of astute 
simile) have labeled this "the 
AIDS of race relations." The 
American public remains almost 
completely oblivious to the sinister 
heathen as they fly undetected 
through the middle-class radar to 
destroy our way of life. They are 
allowed safe passage 
across every state 
and national border, 
and are often given 
room and board by 
unknowing citizens. 
No one expected the 
evils of . . . Cute 

turning eighteen - James had 
made numerous trips across the 
border, always to the same ware- 
house in Matamoras, always in the 
middle of the night. He had never 
asked any questions about the 4x4 
foot wooden crates, which were 
usually loaded into the back of the 
tractor-trailer by a group of Hai- 
tians, but had always assumed that 
whatever was inside, he was better 
off not knowing. As long as he

January 22, 2002; 
8:17 A.M. 

McMann had driven 
the route 273 times. 
As he crossed the Rio Grande to 
Texas, he slashed a piece of white 
chalk across the dashboard, al- 
ready slathered in chalk lines - 
always grouped in fives, to make 
them easier to count - marking his 
274 th crossing of the river back to 
the United States. Since joining

The U.S. border guards 
motioned James to slow down, 
waving him to the side, where an 
armed guard, with a German 
Shepherd on a leash - trained to 
smell drugs and explosives - 
waited. As he shifted down and 
parked, an uneasy feeling ate

through the lining of James' 
stomach: "I knew this time was 
different," said James. "The crates, j 
the instructions; everything. This 
wasn't drugs; this 
was something else. 
I could feel it." 
As the sun un- 
folded her golden 
rays, throwing 
rainbow patterns off 
the oil slicks on the 
Gulf of Mexico, the 
chill of winter 
scraped its nails 
across James' bones. 
He stepped from the 
truck, the wind 
blowing his sandy 
brown hair like 
needles into his eyes, 
and the border 
guards ordered him to open the 
trailer. "As I walked around to the 
back, three more guards joined the 
first two - which I remember 
thinking was a little excessive - 
with a crowbar and an assault rifle. 
At this point I was seriously 
thinking about making a run for it. 
Before I could move, I saw an old, 
white-haired Hispanic break into a;

run, about five feet away from me. 

Gunfire vomited flame over my 

shoulders, and the elderly man 

dropped headless into the middle 

of the highway, whereupon a blue 

Toyota Tercel, 

running a red 

light, tore his 

right arm off 

and flung it 

into the gutter. 

I decided to 

stay put for 

the time 

being." As 

James paced 

nervously, one 

of the crates 

was dragged 

from the trailer 

and set on the 

asphalt. Two 

guards wedged a crowbar under 

the lid, leaning heavily on the 

fulcrum, and nails shot from the 

wood, arcing several feet into the 

air and clanging against the steel 

bumper of the trailer. 

The walls of the crate 
shattered, throwing pine splinters 
into the eyes of James and the 
officers, and a mass of fur and 
fangs erupted from the pulpy 
debris. Rooted to their positions in 
fear, the officers had no time to 
flee before the pack of Cute 
Puppies overcame them, tearing 
their clothing into mere threads, 
and slashing the jugulars of two 
guards and the drug-sniffing 
German Shepherd. James lay 
dazed on the pavement, his eyes 
rooted to the unopened crates still 
stacked in the trailer: several of the 
crates had begun violently rock- 
ing, and a tiny paw was slashing 
through the slats of the crate 
nearest the door of the trailer. The 

puddle of blood emanating from 
James' forehead grew quickly, 
washing across the asphalt, and as 
the fluid covered his eyes, James 
saw a tornado of fur - "kinda like 

ing a numb, lifeless ache. "Then 
came the dark."

James McMann (a ficti- 
tious name used to conceal iden- 
tity) has refused to name any of 
his superiors or contacts, for fear 
of further jeopardizing his life. 
Actually, I've even re- worded his 
quotes, so as to avoid concealment 
through diction style; in some 
instances, I made up quotes of my 
own. The only real information 
that I can possibly give you about 
Mr. McMann is that he is a tall, 
white male, with sandy brown 
hair, who drives a truck. 

Mr. McMann was able, 
however, to give us a spot-on 
accurate description of the cold- 
blooded terrorists, having stared 
straight into the maw of the beast: 

"It was still a little 
dark, you know, what with 
the sun being 
down and all, 
and I couldn 't 
see too good 
with the dirt in 
my eyes - 
'cause I dove 
and hit the 
ground, you 
when I saw 
them pups 
come tearin ' 
out - but I 
could jest make 
out some little 
paws through 
there, and then 
outta the haze come this 
little six-month old golden 
retriever puppy, jest as 
cute as could be - I knew it 
was a golden retriever 


'cause I got one of my own, 
been raising it since it 
wasn 't no more than two 
weeks old - and he jest 
trotted over and licked at 
my nose just like that, you 
see (begins licking the tip 
of his nose with his own 
tongue) jest like we was 
old friends. I smiled at 
him, and he smiled at me, 
and then he sunk his teeth 
into my eyebrow and tore 
the fucker 
right off. 
Now I 
ain 't got 
an eye- 

McMann was 
taken to the 
hospital immedi- 
ately, along with 
four border 
guards. He was 
given several 
hundred stitches, 
and laid uncon- 
scious for six 
days, doped up on 
morphine. Mr. 
McMann de- 
scribes his hellish hospital ordeal 
as "the best trip since I used to go 
digging out back of my pappy 's 
cow pasture - my friends and me, 
we'd pull up 'shrooms 'bout as big 
as your fist, eat 'em whole on the 
spot, see them swirly colors 
everywhere - this shit was better. 
God bless the government!" Mr. 
McMann is currently in drug 

Since the public release of 
James McMann 's story - and 

several others like it, from around 
the country - the government has 
been forced to take action. They - 
and by "they," I mean, of course, 
the government - assure the public 
that they are looking into it as 
much as possible, as they are 
rather busy at this very moment, 
what with this whole bin Laden 
thing going on - and we're really 
close now, you know, you just 
gotta be patient - but they're very 
sure that cute puppies are quite 

traumatic, and causing a whole 
lotta good people quite a bit of 
trouble, but really, they're only 
puppies for Christ's sake . . . and so 

In a bold move, President 
Bush addressed the issue head-on 
in his State of the Union Address: 
President Bush revealed to the 
nation that, though there was no 
real evidence supporting it, he was 
sure that "somehow, Osama bin 
Laden is responsible for this." 

Furthermore, Bush revealed that 
he is placing the Armed Forces in 
a state of "highest alert," which he 
further expanded upon as "red 
alert" after a senior staff member 
leaned in to whisper in his ear. 
Having spent the day hounded by 
reporters from the National 
Enquirer, and other well-respected 
news mediums, Bush assured the 
media that "contrary to my 
cabinet's advice, as well as my 
wife, Congress, close friends and 

the Ameri- 
can public 
at large, I 
intend to 
take this 
issue very 
When the

order to 
combat this 

scourge to 
the Ameri- 
can Way of 
Life, our 
staffed Armed Forces must recruit 
at least 250,000 young men, using 
their notoriously rigorous screen- 
ing process to pick out the true 
puppy-killers from the masses of 
mere animal abusers. As the 
tentatively titled "War on Puppies" 
has yet to be declared an official 
state of war by the President, the 
Armed Forces cannot rely on 
Selective Service to go out into the 
country, club a few hippies and 
drag them back to the recruiter's 
office. U.S. Secretary of Defense 

Donald Rumsfeld has called for all 
divisions of the Armed Forces to 
design "fun" advertising cam- 
paigns - touting the Service as "a 
great place to get beer and titties" 
- appealing to the 12-17 year old 
age group, our military's main 
source of rapists, pillagers and 
nuclear technicians. The Navy 
plans to replace its current com- 
mercial slogan - "if 
someone wrote a book 
about your life, would 
anyone read it?" - with a 
new, more aggressive 
slogan: "Why should 
anyone give a fuck about 
you, you greasy toe jam?" 
The Army, known in 
military circles as "the frat 
boy of the Armed Forces," 
unveiled their full page ad 
on the back cover of the 
April 8, 2002 issue of 
Newsweek, featuring the 
bold text, "ARMY: be- 
cause the Marines work 
too goddamn hard." 

But let us not 
forget the part civilians 
play every day in restoring 
the safety of our great 
nation. Al Gore, comfort- 
ably seated in his new 
position as "Almost 
President of the United 
States, But Sure As Hell 
Not Going to Let Go of 
My Public Prominence," 
detailed his: "environmen- 
tally-friendly suggestions to the 
American pawns ... er, public: We 
must kick every puppy we see; 
inject random dogs with rabies, so 
as to rapidly spread infection and 
thin out possible terrorists; and 
firebomb the houses of the bleed- 
ing-heart, spawn of Satan, 

Commie-bastard members of our 
own society who would try to stop 
us. The A.S.P.C.A. must be the 
first to go." 

No one knows when or 
where the next puppies will attack; 
it is rumored that airport security 
has intercepted puppies with 
bombs in their bellies, posing as 
belonging to families, sometimes 

of violence and hate. Lock them in 
their rooms, don't let them associ- 
ate with 'hippies' and other 
Commie slime, kill their dog 
immediately, and give them a few 
extra beatings, just to show that 
you truly care about their protec- 
tion: they'll thank you for it some 

Most importantly, in order 
to combat the pure evil 
with which these Cute 
Puppies are attempting to 
destroy our Great Nation, 
we must demonstrate love: 
love for ourselves, and all 
others with "the values 
which we hold most dear to 
our hearts." Remember, in 
these times of crisis, it is 
important to think with our 
hearts, not with our heads.

A campus wide e-mail invited all students to walk out of their class on Friday at 11:15 
to protest Schrum's actions regarding the KA fraternity. Students poured out of the 
buildings and met on the Academic Mall

Students depart from the academic mall and head towards the Cullen Building. The

A few students sat in President Schrum's office in Cullen once the march was over. 
From left: Aaron Andrew, and Adam were in Schrum's office for at least 12 hours 
with the students demands. Schrum finally agreed to meet with a group of students 
early the next morning to attempt to reach a compromise. The next morning a 
compromise was agreed upon and a campus wide e-mail stated the new policy for 
KA reinstatement, including a committee of faculty, staff and students which would 
decide whether or not a "paradigm shift" had been reached. 


The Vagina Monologues 

- annie londos and molly bayne 
courtesy of The Megaphone 

The Vagina Monologues were not openly welcomed at Southwestern when they were first 
brought to campus three years ago as part of the national V-Day initiative, but they are quickly 
becoming an SU tradition. Though there is less resistance to the Monologues now (the show was packed 
last year), many people are still uncomfortable with the word "vagina."For the feminists and potential 
feminists out there who want to support women but do not want to support the liberal use of the word 
"vagina," it is crucial to understand why it is being used. We are reclaiming it, rescuing it from 
the trenches of vulgarity, masculinized definitions, and ultimately, pain. 
"Vagina" will continue to be offensive insofar as it represents something 
ugly to us. By not wanting to use the word we are agreeing to ignore 
women's bodies, and by extension, their suffering. When vaginas are 
taboo, exposing the violence against them is also taboo. Though this 
week "vagina" is not deliberately being used as an offensive, its use is a 
deliberate invitation for the kind of discomfort that creates an impetus for 
discussion and open dialogue about women and their bodes. 

"We forget the vagina. What else could explain our lack of awe, 
our lack of wonder..." and in that lack of wonder and appreciation, the 
degradation of women as living, powerful beings? Indeed, what else 
could explain the violence — both physical and psychic that women 
experience daily, across the globe? Certainly, it is not just that the 
vagina is "forgotten" but that it is systematically ignored and abused. 
At least one in three women and girls have been sexually abused or 
beaten in her lifetime (UN Report, February, 2000). Bu t statistics 
don't even count the ineffable forms of pervasive disempowerment, of 
which many women themselves are unaware. "Women spend most of 
their lives recovering from, resisting or surviving violence rather than 
creating and thriving" ( (For those of you who still need 
convincing of this violence, come to the Monologues!) This ignore-ance 
and abuse of vaginas means that most women experience extreme dis- 
connection from their vaginas, their bodies and their own unique sexual- 
ity; this further inhibits them from voicing their fears, desires, and 
experiences... and violence is able to continue. Women need to share their 
stories — this is the purpose of the Vagina Monologues. 

Though the women performing the monologues are performing other 
women's stories, they are also unavoidably sharing their own in the process. 
It is a creative and loving space for women — from all kinds of feminist 
persuasions — to connect with themselves and each other. Eve Ensler wrote 
the Vagina Monologues in 1998 after interviewing hundreds of women about 

their vaginas, recording intimate experiences ranging from rape to childbirth. The monologues are not 
meant merely to bring attention to the violence and shame of women's bodies, but to celebrate their 
sexuality in all its complexity, mystery and humor. 

Someone voiced today that he didn't need to go to the Monologues because he already likes vaginas. 
That's all the more reason to attend. The performance isn't just a political thing — it's also a playful 
thing! Come and be entertained... enjoy it! Besides, if you don't have a vagina, you came into this 
wondrous, beautiful world out of one.

The newly remodeled snack-bar 
opened in the Spring semester 
with better food, better 
atmosphere and controversy. 

The name was debated across campus and over email, and after 
I multiple elections The Cove won, although many thought the 
victory was a bit shady, due to rumors of ballot tampering (for The 
Cove) ... and for many the snack-bar will always be The Joint. 

Renovations to the snack bar included wooden tables (on which students can carve and 
draw), a chalkboard, the return of the pool tables, foosball, shuffleboard, and other games; 
as well as new furniture, color schemes and music. Every booth has an ethernet 
connection to allow students to work in The Cove and a new menu was created in an 
attempt to encourage students to eat in the new snack-bar; however, a student attempt to 
have beer served in The Cove was turned down by the Board of Trustees.

references to "The Joint" as the rightful name of the snack-bar.

Seniors of 2002 may remember seeing... 

Of course the seniors remember eating in the 
old "spaceship"commons for the first few weeks 
of their freshman year before the McCombs 
Campus Center opened. We all hold fond memo- 
ries of the make your own pizza and tubs of 
Blue Bell ice cream. 


Was the RAC always that far away? 

Many will remember that the RAC used to be much closer to the rest of the academic 
buildings. In fact, it was right in between the Chapel and Olin until 1999 when it was literally 
picked up and moved to it's present location. Why it was moved has never been made clear, 
but none the less. you have to make the trek across campus for almost all religion and 
philosophy classes.

The Southwestern Men's Soccer team had an outstanding year, in fact ... they had the 
best year in the school's history. In the 2001 -2002 season, the Pirates held the most 
victories in a season, the most victories in SCAC, the most consecutive victories ( 1 0), 
the most shut-outs (1 0), the most shut-outs in the SCAC (5), the fewest goals allowed in 
a season (1 4) and tied the record for the most goals in a game (7). Their record for the 
year left them 14-5-1 and 5-3-1 in SCAC. This past year also marked the first win ever 
versus Rhodes College, as well as wins against U.M.H.B, Cal Lutheran, McMurry, Rose 
Hulman, Hendrix, T.L.U, H.S.U, Oglethorpe, Millsaps, Huston Tillotson, Austin College,

The Zeta chapter of Alpha Delta Pi enjoyed a successful 95th year on Southwestern's campus. The sisters responded to the tragedy on 
September 1 1th by selling Southwestern patriotic t-shirts and sponsoring the Kappa Sigma Disc Golf Tournament to benefit the Ameri- 
can Red Cross. The ADPi's rescued Pres. Jake Schrum - and captured 2nd place - in their Charlie's Angels inspired perfomance of SING; 
At district conference, they also received notable recognition for scholarship, recruitment, membership, finance, and Panhellenic excel- 
lence. With all their hard work, they still had time to throw a fall party at the Colorado Room, a spring party at Melagio, a formal at the 
Sheraton, mixers with the fraternities, and of course, the dunking booth at Mall Ball. The sisters of ADPi welcome their new Alpha clasj 
and give warm wishes for the upcoming year.

The Making of the 
2001-2002 Sou'wester 

Contrary to popular belief, 
the production of a Univeristy 
Yearbook is NOT all fun and 
games. The sheer volume of blood, 
sweat and tears saturating every 
page of this book is enormous. 

Perhaps the most difficult 
challenge in giving birth to literary 
genius lies in capturing inspiration. 
Luckily, early on in the process we 
hit upon just the right combina- 
tion of drugs and alcohol to fire 
the creative juices and keep them 
pages a rolling. Remembering our 
ideas was the hard part ...

Explanations, Apologies, Addendums 

by Photo Editor Allen Cote 

There is nothing wrong 
with your Yearbook. Do not at- 
tempt to adjust the pictures or text. 
We are controlling transmission. 
We are controlling the images 
flashing across your mindscreen. 
We are the Liberals. 

When I was asked to do 
this Yearbook, my immediate reac- 
tion was "Sounds 
like fun." Little did 
I know that I would 
spend the next nine 
months of my life 
dealing with an 
staff, unaccommo- 
dating organiza- 
tions, severe chemi- 
cal burns from 
working in the 
darkroom until the 
inattentive hour of 
five (A.M., of 
course), and pages 
that mysteriously 
disappear overnight 
(it turns out we have a cannibalis- 
tic computer). Despite it all, I sur- 
vived and triumphed, and was ul- 
timately rewarded with ... well, 
these two pages, I guess. So you 
had better read them. 

First, a few explanations: 

The pseudo-Sergeant 
Pepper's style faculty pages were 
the result of an extremely poor 
turnout for the department pic- 
tures. I took the pictures from last 
year's book, and digitally pasted 
them on to a collage (created from 
old class pictures, Yearbooks, and 
various fashion-type magazines). 


The straightforward faculty pic- 
tures are the departments who 
worked with us (or actually RE- 
SPONDED to the e-mail), so next 
time you see one of these profes- 
sors, give 'em a big hug for me. 

You may have noticed that 
there are a great many pictures 
bearing my name, and many more 

that bear no markings at all. No, I 
am neither conceited nor absent- 
minded (well, maybe a little ab- 
sent-minded). Near the beginning, 
when I thought I would have more 
help, I painstakingly labeled each 
individual picture; upon receiving 
the first set of proofs, encompass- 
ing about half the book, I realized 
that there were a helluva lot of 
"photo by Allen Cote" bylines, and 
simply lost interest in slathering 
my name all over the book. Con- 
sequently, virtually all pictures that 
don't bear a name or copyright in- 
formation actually belong to me 

(so maybe I'm a little conceited, 

You may also have noticed j 
that, at times, this book appears to 
be "The Allen Show," with entire? 
pages devoted to pictures and very | 
little caption information. I blame 
this on you. With two people con- 
structing an entire Yearbook, we 
have little time to 
research and record 
the names of every 
damn person in this 
book, so if you sent I 
us a picture with no I 
caption informa- 
tion, that's what we; 
printed. A good; 
way to view this: 
book is as more of 
a photo essay thanii 
anything else. Andi 
hey, a picture's;! 
worth a thousandi 
words, right? 
If your favorite de- 
partment, sport ori 
organization is missing from these 
pages, it's because they never re- 
sponded to our multiple e-mails, or 
never provided us with pictures and 
information. We have nothing; 
against the Athletics department or 
the fraternities. Well, that is we 
didn't until they ignored our pleas 
for assistance. Now they can all 
burn in hell as far as I'm con-< 

My apologies go out to 
anyone who is ultimately disap- 
pointed or offended by this mas- 
terwork of left-wing propaganda. 
We tried to be even-handed, bul 


there's only so much you can do 
WHITE. In fact, I suggest that any- 
one who has a serious issue with 
this Yearbook go out and run for 
the position of Editor; I guarantee 
you'll win. 

I'd also like to offer my sin- 
cere apologies to anyone 
who saw me stumbling 
around the McCombs 
Center half-naked on the 
morning of a deadline, 
having slept on the floor 
of the office. I know I'm 

I not a very happy camper 
when I wake up, and I 
hope I didn't rip your 
head off. 

Thanks are due 
to the many people who 
pre-ordered the Year- 
book (at a rather outra- 
geous price, as well). 
You had faith in us, and 
without you and your 
funding there would 

; quite literally have been 
no Yearbook. 

Special Thanks 
go to those who actually 
did do some work on the 
Titanic (as I've taken to 
calling our baby). Mats 
Edorsson, for looming 
ominously over people 
until they agreed to take 
their portrait, and for being one hell 
of a Swede; I'm coming out there 
as soon as I can, buddy! Missy 
Davis, for driving all the way from 
Austin, and filling in when I was 
unavailable; I'll forgive you for 
skipping out on all the developing 
and printing. Brooks Wilson, mas- 
ter photographer and disciple; 
carry on, my wayward son. Mary 
Jane Valetti . . . well, just for being 
Mary Jane. All contributed their 
time and energy towards sales, 

photography and writing, without 
so much as a request for compen- 
sation. Bless you all. 

Very Special Thanks goes 
to Dr. Leese for his moral support, 
and for placing the utmost trust in 
us. To anyone who's actually made 
it this far through my rant, I'd just 

like to say that, contrary to popu- 
lar belief, Dr. Leese is one of the 
nicest, most accommodating 
people I've met during my time 
here at Southwestern. Even when 
I toe the line of indecency, he rec- 
ognizes my right to Free Speech 
(unlike others I could mention), 
and continues to have unwavering 
faith in my abilities. Just don't 
touch his Eggo waffle. 

Well, that about wraps it 
up. My tour of duty as Yearbook 

Photo Editor/Salesman/Copy Edi- 
tor/Writer has come to an end, as 
has my time here at Southwestern 
University. No, I'm not graduating, 
just moving on to bigger and bet- 
ter places. And who knows, maybe 
I'll flee halfway across the world 
only to realize that my home is in 
Georgetown; as 
Lao-Tzu said, "The 
farther one travels, 
the less one knows." 
But no mat- 
ter how far I travel, 
know that I am with 
each and every one 
of you. If you listen 
closely, you'll hear 
me in the rustling of 
the pages; in the 
clicking of a shutter; 
in the crackling of a 
flaming pipe. I will 
forever remain a 
part of this school 
and of this Year- 
book, and they will 
forever remain a 
part of me. A piece 
of my soul hovers 
approximately six 
inches over the 
cover of this book. 
So be care- 
ful when you're 
changing in the 
same room. 

If anyone has any desire to 
track me down, my e-mail address 
is allenwrench(a),eudoramail. com . 
I look forward to hearing your re- 
sponses, and I hope (I pray) that 
you won 't come looking for me with 
a firearm. 

Take care, everybody. 


Warm Fuzzies 




One cold, rainy day over 
Christmas break I was sitting with 
my roommate, Katie Pierce, and 
Allen Cote. We realized there was 
to be no yearbook this year, our 
senior year and Katie decided to 
take on the project. Little did I 
realize on this cold day what I was 
getting into. After frantic pre-sales 
at slightly outrageous prices, we 
finally had enough money to 
"Save the Yearbook." However, 
when the time came to actually 
create the 1 60 something pages of 
the yearbook, to collect and take 
the photos and build the pages . . . 
it was left to Allen and myself. We 
quickly learned how difficult it is 
to contact organizations, sports 
and departments; and how diffi- 
cult it is to come up with 160 
something pages of photos and 
text the campus would find inter- 
esting. So, after many caffeine, 
nicotine, alcohol and drug induced 
all-nighters - we gave up on 
entertaining the campus and 
decided to entertain ourselves and 
do whatever was necessary to 
finish the yearbook that was 
slowly sucking away our lives. 

Well, that is not completely 
true. I will not apologize for the 
lack of representation of sports, 
organizations, departments, and so 
forth in the yearbook this year. We 
sent many messages in various 
forms, through mail, email and 
phone, and still received little 




response. So we used our own 
creative minds to include everyone 
we could . . . those who were left 
out should have returned our 
desperate calls. 

I will not apologize for the 
liberal slant of the yearbook this 
year. As Allen stated on his two 
pages, if you truly have a problem 
with it . . . run for yearbook editor, 
no one else wants to do it. Then 
you can make the yearbook into 
whatever you want it to be. Just be 
prepared for late nights, missed 
deadlines, a dwindling staff, and 
uncooperative organizations and 

There are many people I 

would like to thank, without whom 
this yearbook would not have been 
possible. A huge thank you to 
everyone who purchased a year- 
book . . . although it may have 
caused me to suffer from lack of 
sleep and high stress, in the end I 
am grateful for this opportunity 
and excited that there will be a 
yearbook for 2001-2002. A special 
thank you for everyone who 
helped out without us begging or 
offering compensation: to Mats 
Edorsson, without whom there 
would not be half as many year- 
book portraits; to Missy Davis, 
who at the last minute jumped in 
as yearbook photographer when 
Allen and I were out of time and 
energy; to Brooks Wilson, whose 
wonderful pictures appear 
throughout the yearbook, to The 
Megaphone writers and staff, who, 
without realizing, saved me in so 
many ways with pictures and 
stories; and to Mary Jane Valetti, 
who always has something to 
contribute (often to the dismay of 
her audience). I would also like to 
thank Jaime Woody, who allowed 
me to have the best job over the 
summer, and offered numerous 
hours of support when I would 
stumble into work late after having 
slept in the Yearbook office trying 
to meet a deadline. I would like to 
offer a special thank you to Dr. 
Leese, our Yearbook advisor, for 
having so much faith in our 

abilities; and our Taylor represen- 
tative, Jim Anderson, for putting 
up with our continually missed 

Finally, I would like to 
thank my photo editor, Allen Cote, 
who exceeded the demands and 
expectations of his job and be- 
came a photographer, a writer, a 

This yearbook was defi- 
nitely a task, and I cannot believe 
that it is finally finished. However, 
I cannot think of a better way to 
end my four years at Southwest- 
ern. This past year has definitely 
had its ups and downs, a lot has 
happened and hopefully we were 
able to capture at least a part of 

reflection in the McCombs Center 
on 9- 1 1 , the search for a missing 
student, the protests and actions at 
the end of the year - I am proud to 
have been a part of it all, and I am 
honored that my senior year saw 
such unity throughout the campus. 
I hope everyone continues to stand 
up for what they believe in and

that in this book. I think we did. 

I may complain about 
Southwestern, we all do . . . but 
when it comes down to it, it will 
always hold a place in my heart. 
This past year, to me, really 
exemplified the theme of the 
book: Strength in Unity. I saw this 
campus come together in ways I 
never imagined it could: the

Thank you all for this opportunity, 
I will miss you!
